The proud, reckless British general Pakenham - certain that it will be only a matter of days before America is reduced once more to colonial status - finds himself forced to ferry his miserable troops across a Louisiana lake in a Gulf storm, and then discovers to his gentlemanly dismay that agile Choctaw and Tennessee "dirty shirt" sharpshooters make a sport of picking off his sentries by night. The city's Creoles, somewhat suspicious of the enterprise and only recently American citizens, after all, draw the line at blacking out their street lamps
Henry Clay : statesman for the Union by Robert V Remini( Book )

8 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 1,718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among nineteenth-century Americans, few commanded the reverence and respect accorded to Henry Clay of Kentucky. As orator and as Speaker of the House for longer than any man in the century, he wielded great power, a compelling presence in Congress who helped preserve the Union in the antebellum period. Remini portrays both the statesman and the private man, a man whose family life was painfully torn and who burned with ambition for the office he could not reach, the presidency.--From publisher description

Daniel Webster : the man and his time by Robert V Remini( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 1,489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this monumental new biography, Robert V. Remini gives us a full life of Webster from his birth, early schooling, and rapid rise as a lawyer and politician in New Hampshire to his equally successful career in Massachusetts where he moved in 1816. Remini treats both the man and his time as they tangle in issues such as westward expansion, growth of democracy, market revolution, slavery and abolitionism, the National Bank, and tariff issues. Webster's famous speeches are fully discussed as are his relations with the other two of the "great triumvirate", Henry Clay and John C. Calhoun. Throughout, Remini pays close attention to Webster's personal life - perhaps more than Webster would have liked - his relationships with family and friends, and his murky financial dealings with men of wealth and influence

Joseph Smith by Robert V Remini( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 1,341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Joseph Smith, Robert Remini explores one of the Jacksonian epoch's major figures. The most important reformer and innovator in American religious history, Joseph Smith has remained a fascinating enigma to many both inside and outside the Mormon Church, which he founded." "Born in 1805, Smith grew up during the Second Great Awakening, when secular tumult had spawned radical religious fervor and countless new sects. His contemplative nature and soaring imagination - the first of his many visions occurred at the age of fourteen - were nurtured in the close, loving family created by his deeply devout parents. His need to lead and be recognized was met by his mission as God's vehicle for a new faith and by the multitudes who, mesmerized by his charm and charismatic preaching, flocked to the Mormon Church. Remini brings Smith into unprecedented focus and contextualizes his enduring contributions to American life and culture within the distinctive characteristics of an extraordinary age."--Jacket

17 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Short History of the United States, Robert V. Remini explores the arrival and migration of Native Americans throughout the Western Hemisphere and their achievements; the discovery of the New World by Europeans and the establishment of colonies by the Spanish, French, English, and Dutch; the causes of the American Revolution; the founding of a republic under the Constitution; the formation of political parties; the War of 1812 and the resulting economic and cultural changes; the democratic impetus during the Jacksonian era; westward expansion and the Mexican War; the struggle over slavery, which led to the Civil War; Reconstruction and the rise of big business; the emergence of the United States as a world power; the descent into the Great Depression; the global conflicts of the twentieth century; the rise of conservatism; and the outbreak of terrorism here and abroad. In addition, Remini illustrates how former English subjects slowly transformed themselves into Americans, and shows how a collection of sovereign, independent colonies united to create a workable, constantly evolving republican government whose democratic principles reflect the changing mores and attitudes of the citizens it represents. He explains the reasons for the nation's unique and enduring strengths, its artistic and cultural accomplishments, its genius in developing new products to sell to the world, and its abiding commitment to individual freedoms--From publisher description

Although the Compromise would collapse ten years later, plunging the nation into civil war, Clay's victory in 1850 ultimately saved the Union by giving the North an extra decade to industrialize and prepare
1846 : portrait of the nation by Margaret C. S Christman( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1846 America, a young, vibrant republic, was expanding in directions unimagined only a few years earlier. The nation plunged into war with Mexico and rushed to settle the West. The country saw the steady rise of cities, the expansion of the railroad, and the emergence of great works of literature and art. On August 10 of that year, in an act that embodied the country's buoyant mood, Congress accepted the bequest of Englishman James Smithson and established an institution dedicated to the "increase and diffusion of knowledge." Marking the Smithsonian Institution's 150th anniversary, 1846 evokes the texture of American daily life, thought, and politics during a single influential year. In a narrative accompanied by nearly two hundred illustrations, Margaret Christman revisits a capital dominated by Daniel Webster, John C. Calhoun, and James K. Polk and follows the westward journeys of Brigham Young, Francis Parkman, and the ill-fated Donner party. Moving from the Transcendentalists to the Hudson River School, from Gothic Revival architecture to anesthesia and the sewing machine, Christman chronicles as well the antislavery movement and other social-reform campaigns that expanded the nation's conscience and changed its future
